Charlotte Mary O’Connor aka Charlotte OC started her music career very early on and signed her very first record deal at 18. Already some time ago we fell in love with her strong voice and had the pleasure to interview her. The last year was not easy for all of us and it was also a hard year for the British singer and songwriter. In her forthcoming full-length album “Here Comes Trouble” she deals with some of these painful experiences – the loss of her father, the end of an relationship.
After releasing “Bad Bitch”, “Forest”, “Bad News” and “Centre of the Universe”, her latest release “Mexico” offers another foretaste to her album; vulnerable and at the same time strong, Charlotte’s voice swells to the cool hues of the visually reduced video.
Charlotte tells: “I’m so proud and excited for this video as it’s the first video I’ve ever directed. Myself and Jan came together to bring alive an idea I had, to demonstrate my emotional state when making the song. Mexico is all about my ex being away during a time when we weren’t great. I was trying to get his attention and to show him how much I loved him.
I wanted the video to show the turmoil I was in when I didn’t quite know what was going on. I was feeling lost and I drank a lot. I think a lot of people can relate, this video is me drowning my sorrows at the state of my relationship.”
